And it is fun...

Karl.Luhr,
I know what you meant, but for those that are new to reloading, to reliably check your over all case length, you will need a vernier caliper, not a micrometer. except for special use requirements, micrometers are generally for measuring small components 1.5 " or less. a 6" vernier caliper is pretty much a standardly available instrument and can be had for a reasonable am out.
